First Look: Ryan Reynolds As Green Lantern

Looking good, Ryan Reynolds!An excited fan, thrilled by the news that actor Ryan Reynolds will play superhero Green Lantern in an upcoming live-action film, sent the folks at /Film his handmade version of how Reynolds might appear in costume. (Click that link to see it in its full-sized glory.) Normally, this is the kind of thing we'd mock, but I'm moved by the exuberance and creativity. In fact, I'm a bit of a Green Lantern fan myself. Here's my version of what Reynolds will look like. This is a more domestic scene, where the Lantern spends some time with his dog Astro.
Man, I cannot WAIT for this movie.

Huh? Could some hetero drunkard please explain this too me?

(Also? I know next to nothing about Reynolds other than gays liking him. Some gay who has touched my penis in the last week was very angry about this choice as Reynolds is to (something, I don't remember) and Hal Jordan is more "fearless" and "man's man".)

(Also also? I bought my first Green Lantern comic book in 1979 or so. Guy Gardener had just died, and GL hooked up with his girlfriend, Kari Limbo, so it's not a lack of GL knowledge preventing my understanding here.)

Two, to, too, tu, toile … whatever. OVER THIS WEEK!

Then you must be aware of the issue when GL saves Teh Gays! Once this became common knowledge among my high school friends, I was mocked for liking GL.

Actually, that was Kyle Rayner, who was Green Lantern when Hal Jordan was possessed by Parallax. The issus were written by Judd Winnick, who also wrote Pedro & Me and of Real World – Tulsa (or somewhere) fame.

NOW I know why I always read x-men and Spiderman as a kid. We always kind of wondered "WTF. Who actually reads GL?"

Spider-Man? Fuck that shit.

"Oh no, here comes my arch-nemesis, The Green Goblin. What so-ever shall I do?"

Says the guy whose power comes from something he got at Henri Bendel.

Your knowledge of the green latern is both impressive and frightening.

Lantern evening. Same feelings on week as expressed above.

Lantern even. Same feelings on week as expressed above.

I give up.

I never thought I could be in love with you more, and then you bust out the comic book geekiness. *sigh* You're so dreamy.

That's nothing compared to the fan-made Green Lantern trailer

BTW: are those the dog's NUTS floating in the bath?!

Actually, those nuts belong to another dog, otherwise submarine.
